An Arabic singer's one-man a capella harmonies have gone viral in Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

In his latest video, Alaa Wardi's covers "Fi Hagat," a tune made popular by Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram, using his mouth, body and even his beard. This style should be familiar to Western audiences. Previously, videos of artist Mike Tompkins' pop covers, performed similarly, became enormously popular in the U.S. and elsewhere.
